Bird watching is intriguing. Such amazing creatures. Did you know that Jesus commands us to look at the birds? In Matthew 6:26 Jesus says, “Look at the birds of the air, they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they?”
If you watch them, you will see what joyous creations they are! They are simply beautiful. Many sizes and colors, they sing and soar, and perch peacefully in the safety of high places. Birds playfully chase each other through the air. They watch from up high, then drop down when its safe. Carefree.
We are to soar. We are to sit in the high places with our Savior, relaxing and trusting in Him, knowing that He is in Control of our situations. We are to be joyful! We are to sing, rejoice, and give praise to the Lord.
Slow down today. Take some time, wherever you are, to look at the birds. You will be amazed and blessed by their presence. And, you will then understand why Jesus commands us to, “look at the birds!”
